    Retina tear- had laser surgery

    What is the best way to take care of your eye after laser surgery for a retinal tear? How long can you expect to experience the floaters or elongated curved flashes of light?

    I didn't read or use the computer for a week after my tear was lasered. Though this may not be true for you, I have found the my floaters have remained. My sight in that eye is fine, thank God, but the floaters seem to be keepers.
    I would ask your retinologist about the flashes. I still have occasional flashes, though everything is fine now and I have no new tears.
